Megan is a weekly Another71 Facebook blogger as she documents her journey through the CPA Exam. This week, it will be extra challenging to stay on target with my study plan for REG. I’m moving to a new place this weekend, and I’m so excited for the new beginning that all I want to do is pack!! I won’t lie; I packed for an hour and a half last night when I should have been studying. Isn’t it a shame when you find yourself doing something productive and necessary yet you still feel like you’re procrastinating!? The good news is, I made sure to devote some time to studying last night as well. There is something I’ve noticed lately that I thought would be a great topic of discussion: multiple choice questions seem to be the “worst” part of studying for me and many others, yet they are a valuable

Kim is a weekly Another71 Facebook blogger as she documents her journey through the CPA Exam. Hello to you all and hope that your wintertime CPA studies are going well! I attended the FAR intensive review course in Houston this weekend, and it was excellent. Of course, it was fast-paced and every minute of the 18 hours of class time was utilized to maximize our learning. One of the best parts of attending these courses is the people that you meet. The only other female in the class and I became fast friends. She commented before the course began that she was considering moving her test date up from the middle of February to one day this week since this course would be fresh on her mind. After the first day was over, we both were reminded again about just how much material there is in FAR and to be honest…

Shuchi is a weekly Club 75 Blogger as she documents her journey through the CPA Exam. She has been a member of Another71.com’s Club 75 since April 2010. Hello everyone! I hope all my fellow future CPAs have started their new year off with the same attitude that I have: 2012 is the year I am going to be a CPA! The journey toward this prestigious title as many of us share is tough, but after finally conquering my nemesis BEC, I feel like nothing can stop me now. Even though the process of studying and earning the BEC credit cost me my REG credit and landed me in the ER with a herniated disk – my own fault for studying for almost six to seven hours on a backless stool – I am determined not to lose this BEC credit. I feel as if my next challenge is FAR. I

Bridget is a weekly Club 75 Blogger as she documents her journey through the CPA Exam. She has been a member of  Club 75 since December 2010. Working steadily throughout the week, I hoped to report that I had caught up on my plan. Not even close. Leaving enough time for a thorough review is a must for me in order pass FAR. I need to finish all MCQ’s and complete my note rewrite by the end of the first week of February. Considering that I still need to finish all the lectures, my February goal may be wishful thinking. But I refuse to let that possibility get in the way and distract me from my studies, at least I am giving it a good try. For me, anxious studying means little or no focus or retention, so I strive to not let my head get in the way. I
